Risk Working Group Meeting Update

The Risk Working Group has decided to follow in the footsteps of the Evolution Working Group and move to primarily asynchronous interaction. This means that the regular Risk Working Group meetings have been removed from the CHAOSS calendar. Thank you to Sophia Vargas for volunteering to be the Risk Liaison in case new metrics need to be developed. Two points of note:

  • The Risk WG Minutes/Agenda will be kept as an open document and when there are enough items to be discussed, an ad-hoc meeting can be scheduled.
  • This group also interacts often with the OpenSSF Risk Dashboard meetings and the CHAOSS OSPO/Todo Group meetings, so risk-related discussions can also happen there.

If you are not a part of the Risk Working Group on Slack, you can join here.

Thanks to Our New Context Liaisons!

We recently put the call out for Context Liaisons and it was immediately answered! Our Context Liaisons are responsible for attending both meetings (Common and their Context WG). They will create a first draft of the metrics/metrics models to be developed using the CHAOSS template. We are currently documenting the finer details of this role, but in the meantime we are sending out a huge thanks to the following CHAOTICS for stepping up to fulfill this role:

  • Jenn Colt – University OSPO Context Group
  • Ruth Ikegah, Maryblessing Okolie – OSPO/Todo Context Working Group
  • Sean Goggins, Anita Ihuman, Busayo Oyo – Scientific Software Working Group

CHAOTIC of the Week Will Be Back Soon

Just a point of note that our regular CHAOTIC of the Week segment has been on pause for a couple of weeks, but it will continue next week. If you have any nominations for a CHAOTIC of the Week, let Elizabeth Barron know!
